The Brand

The brand and vision for the London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games was launched in London on 4 June 2007 by Sebastian Coe and a team of London 2012 ambassadors. It replaced London’s ‘candidate city’ logo, which was established in November 2003.

At the heart of the London 2012 brand is a bold Emblem. The Olympic Emblem is based on the number 2012 – the year of the Games – and includes the Olympic Rings, one of the world’s most recognised brands, and the word ‘London’ – the world’s most diverse city. For the first time for a Host City, the Emblems for the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games are based on the same core shape, reflecting London’s commitment to hosting a truly integrated Paralympic Games.

The four original colours of the Olympics 2012 identity – pink, blue, green and orange – were inspired by the worlds of media, communications and fashion. The colours were carefully chosen to communicate the spirit of the London Olympic Games : energetic, spirited, bright and youthful.

The motto for London 2012 is ‘Inspire a generation', reflecting the promise made when London bid for the Games.
